Has Turbocharging Ruined One Of The Best Sports Cars Ever?

This enthusiast thinks so.

The Porsche 911 has always been one of the greatest sports cars for enthusiasts that aren’t interested in compromising. With its ability to do it all, the 911 has always been referred to as one of the purist sports cars on the market, but Porsche went in a different direction with its latest model. Harry Metcalfe is no stranger to great Porsches as he has shown off his personal 1989 911 Turbo and 993 GT2 replica before, but can’t seem to muster the same amount of enthusiasm for the turbocharged unit in the new 911 Carrera S.

While Metcalfe loves the new 911’s handling, he has a lot to complain about when it comes to the sports car’s engine. Is Metcalfe right about the new 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged engine or is the enthusiast trying to find something to complain about?
